In 2020, The Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight” turns 40 years old, and that means we’re all about a dozen years from collecting social security. Expect nothing but good vibes, however, when New Jersey rap crew arrives at Jannus Live with Grandmaster Mele Mel and Scorpio (aka Furious 5) in tow.

Sugarhill Gang w/Furious 5. Sat. Nov. 9, 8 p.m. $12. Jannus Live, St. Petersburg.
